NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers shot and injured a construction worker south of Nablus on Monday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli forces opened fire at two construction workers near Madama village south of Nablus.

One worker was shot and detained by Israeli soldiers, while the other worker is unaccounted for.

Dozens of villagers helped to look for the missing worker following the incident, Daghlas said, adding that both men have not yet been identified.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops shot a Palestinian photographer with a rubber-coated steel bullet on Monday during clashes in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, locals said.

Muhammad al-Azza, 30, from the nearby Azza camp was taken to a hospital in Beit Jala with moderate injuries.

He works at the Lajee Center in Aida camp, locals told Ma'an.
